Trivia

After 24 episodes of the "Three Mesquiteeers" series, Ray Corrigan was dissatisfied with Reoublic's financial arrangements and so established this similar series with producer George Weeks at Monogram. Ironically the Monogram series ran 24 episodes also, many of which were shot at the Corriganville Movie Ranch in Sun Valley. See more »

Goofs

When Alibi is climbing to get the bad guy, a poured concrete bridge is clearly visible, a practice that was not in use in the late 19th Century West. See more »

Quotes

Elmer, Alibi's Dummy: What's the matter, Alibi?
'Alibi' Terhune: Oh, Elmer, I'm worried! I can't make head or tails of this set-up!
Elmer, Alibi's Dummy: You wouldn't know one end from the other anyhow.
'Alibi' Terhune: Aw, listen, you oughtn't to talk like that. Haven't you no respect for age?
Elmer, Alibi's Dummy: Only when it comes in bottles.

Good western, likable characters, not too much humor/music
29 January 2000 | by (Long Island Motor Parkway) – See all my reviews

The first of the Range Busters movies. It starts off great, with a cowboy who's midway through singing a song being shot through an open window by "The Phantom." Unfortunately, there is one other song in the movie (sung by Dusty & strummed by Crash). A couple of other problems: 1) can anybody tell me why Alibi, a grown man, is carrying around a wooden dummy (Elmer) as he rides the range?, 2) can anybody tell me what happens to the Earle Hodgins character? He's a central character who just completely disappears without a mention! Other than those gripes, this is a good western, with likable lead characters, good action, & not too much humor or music, & I've never seen anyone drop a love interest as quickly as Dusty does in this movie! Enjoyable, & worth watching.
